Therefore, recycling removes these hazardous materials from entering into the environment.

Computers are also some times disassembled to support re-manufacturing program. Some of these components are removed for reuse. For example, some of the important parts of computer system like the power supply, processor, rechargeable battery, the hard drive, memory chips, circuit board and the various video and sound cards.

The CPUs often contain materials that can be recycled and then re-used in manufacturing of new components. The metal components present in the computer are normally just separated and delivered for metal recycling. The items are then can be sold to the smelters who melt them to make some new products.There are many reasons for the participation in the computer recycling.

We all know that recycling is very beneficial because it reuses the materials rather than putting them in the landfills. Recycling also reduces the pollution and helps to save the natural resources because materials do not have to be developed from the scratch.
